Nihao!

This morning we debarked the cruise ship at our final destination point: Chongqing, the hottest and spiciest city of the trip. Here we met Yi Ping, a professor from Southwest University, who would stay with us for the remainder of the course. After leaving our luggage at the hotel and eating a big serving of spicy noodles at the Southwest cafeteria for breakfast, we went to Di Ho Lake, a study site for students in life sciences at Southwest University. The lake has over 100 different types of algae and few fish, making it a perfect site to study and compare to other lakes. We took a water sample from the lake to analyze in the lab for later, and then traveled to a nature reserve within the city. The park includes botanical gardens, and has over 1800 different plant species. We were able to see many native (as well as introduced) species, such as the Aceracae tree, the dominant species in the area. Some of the class also decided to climb the nearby JinYun Mountain to get a view of Chonqing from the top.  The view of the city and the Yangtze was very beautiful, although for the first time we were able to fully see just how industrialized and busy the area (and the air) really was.

We went back down the mountain to meet the rest of the class for a delicious (and spicy!) lunch with the local farmers who were very friendly and talked about their work in the field. Before going home, we visited another botanical garden that had been turned into a temple for Taoism, a type of Chinese religion. The garden further demonstrated the wide diversity of plant and tree species in China, as it included a class 1 (very rare) protected species called “wuhlus” (??), as well as ancient fern trees from the cretaceous period, amongst other vegetation.

After our long day, we ate a dinner where nearly every plate had something spicy on it, but it was exciting to see what our taste buds could handle! At the end of the meal there was tea cake for desert – something we had not seen before, as usually the desert had been watermelon. We had many new experiences, both at the dinner table and in the field, and we were excited to see what our next two days in Chongqing had to offer! 


上的三日真是不好受,我这个人不讲究,看着水龙头里流出的黄黄的江水,洗脸洗澡也就无所谓了,冯先生还可以吟着那首:君在长江头,妾住长江尾,睹物思人。但那几个女孩子还真是作孽,每天在外面游览都要出个几身的汗,吃个饭又要加上一身,却连澡都不敢去洗。不过无论有多大的雨却丝毫都不会影响天晴后的好心情,尤其是郭佳,当车开到宾馆后那开心的样子活脱像个待嫁的小姑娘,莲蓬里花花的水声这时候比贝多芬还实在太多了。

回复了精神头后,当天下午我们就挺进缙云山了。黛湖,以藻类的极其丰富的多样性闻名天下,数位教授功成名都就拜其所赐。正是这么多样的藻类,让湖水始终处于贫营养的状态,蓝藻的爆发那是2000公里外的事情与这里无关。正如百家争鸣之时,走向繁华;若仅一家独大,那就是绝对的权利所带来的绝对腐败。有趣的是我们在那里采了水样,在西南大学的显微镜下却看到了很少很少的藻类,这么说藻类可能也受不了这样的酷热躲到深处乘凉去了。

在重庆的第一顿那是在一个农家店里面,当然是在我们爬了大约一个小时的山路之后,可惜没有尝到传说中的那么酷辣。不过重点不在此,明天我们就要吃火锅去了,总算要见识到真正的满江红了!吃饭的时候李江同学算是来了精神,拿着我的相机研究得不亦乐乎。我们也就是在这一顿,吃到了我们相聚以来的第一个梨,还是家乡的味道好啊!我们这里虽然有内忧也有外患,但是家乡的一草一木足以让我们骄傲,看着恐龙吃的蕨草还坚韧地扎在山石缝里任凭瀑布冲刷,我们也会把根扎在自己的土地里吧。

群山环绕之中不仅潜藏着重庆美女甲天下的秘密,也有这个大西南跳动着的有力的脉搏。

写于中加之行结束的一个月后,就算在今天我看到那长长的桌椅也似乎还会看见那上面摆着“永远占据着”的笔记本电脑,西南的几个人在有说有笑;老冯还在和那些外国人聊天;同济的孩子们还在和马老师请教;王老伯也一个人坐在墙角玩着他的Pad;而我呢,就不过去了,免得又破坏了这些气氛。

 

Blog  8/12   Wen Jing, Li jiang, Li jingying, Tao Ye, Basia

After three days’ boat trip, we are physically and mentally exhausted. It’s not very interesting to stay in a small boat for 3 days, although we went ashore in several places to visit some old cities. Anyway, it was time to get off and go to the last destination of our summer course—Chong Qing! We were immediately sent to the Southwest University, which is located in the Beibei District, and took a quick shower. Yes, the sanitary tap water is available to us again. After a wonderful shower, we were all rejuvenated!

    We spent the whole morning in the Jinyun Mountain. It is a tourist attraction, a natural preservation area and also the place for Southwest University’s biology summer course. Professor Deng, who comes from Southwest University, gave us the guidance in Jinyun Mountain. First of all, we stopped beside a small lake. it is called “Dai” lake. There are many species of algae, especially the diatom, living in this lake and it’s not surprising to find the water is dark green. That’s why this lake has the name “Dai”, because “Dai” means dark green in Chinese. Although there are many algae in Dai lake, there is no evidence that this lake is going to have an algae bloom. The main reason is that the ecosystem in this lake is quite healthy, different kinds of algae need to compete for the resources so there is no algae bloom. There is another reason t is this lake is in the preservation area, thus there is not much nutrition loading into this lake. Deng also shared his thought about the management and planning of natural preservation area.

    We climbed the mountain, after about 1 hours walk, we stopped in a restaurant and ate the local food and continued our walking to reach the summit. We recognized plants along our way. There are approximately 1800 species of plants in this mountain, about 600 of them are botanic garden species. Many species are of great significance, there are 30 plants that are listed in the first and second class of species that worth protecting in China. There are 14 endemic species and also the type species. We were luckily to see a fern which t is the food of dinosaur, we call it “Spinulose tree fern” or “Cyathea”.

   That the first day in Chong Qing, and we were impressed with the city. So many mountains! It’s amazing that nearly all the buildings and roads are built in high mountains!

   One more thing that is important, we are looking forward to eat the famous Chong Qing hotpot tomorrow!
